President’s Corner – The New Year Brings Change


January 2019

 





Happy New Year everyone.  As 2019 begins I am excited to start my two-year term as president of the Fort Worth PMI Chapter.  I am also thrilled to serve with the other members of the board and extended leadership team that we have assembled.  They are as skilled a team as I have ever served with.  2019 marks the 50th anniversary of PMI, and the organization continues to roll out its updated strategic plan.  In short, PMI’s new strategic focus is on providing service to members, as they travel through their career journey.  Over the past six months, as the incoming leadership team has begun our transition and planning for this year, we have set our chapter goals and objectives in alignment with PMI’s overall strategy, member satisfaction survey, and critical opportunities. 
 
The following are the Fort Worth chapter’s 4 operational goals for 2019, and in the coming months we will provide a more detailed breakdown of each of these in articles like this:
 
  • Strengthen the execution of the existing volunteer model to recruit and maintain a volunteer base that will meet the chapter's needs
  • Improve our current website to allow for easy content updates, better organized content, better events administration, consistent look and feel
  • Improve member communications to increase awareness of benefits and opportunities, and chapter value proposition
  • Promote the growth of the project management profession and best practices through high-quality educational events and networking opportunities in the communities we serve
 
You may notice some changes already in formatting of the newsletter as the communications team develops new layouts and content organization, as well as fresher, more frequently updated content on the website and all channels.  One of the tenets of the communications team this year is developing a communications plan and calendar based on themes each quarter, which drives communication outputs. 
 
Another exciting change you have hopefully heard by now is our new venue for our monthly chapter dinner meeting.  Starting February 21st, we will be meeting EACH MONTH again, the 3rd Thursday of the month (6:00 – 8:30) at our new home – The Texas Star Conference Center, located at 1400 Texas Star Pkwy, Euless, TX.    For many years we have lost money at every chapter dinner meeting due to the rising cost of hotel venues, while we tried to keep our member cost relatively stable.  This was the main reason we reduced our dinner meetings last year.  Our primary driver for changing venues was to eliminate monetary loss so we could respond to your feedback and return to monthly dinner meetings. We hope you will love this beautiful and friendly new home.   Our professional development team also has several other new services they hope to roll out soon. 
 
We have many volunteer opportunities available to get involved with the chapter, and you can find out about them in the newsletter and in VRMS  https://vrms.pmi.org.  I hope to see everyone at the February 21st chapter dinner meeting at Texas Star Conference Center.  Let’s have a great 2019!

Texas Star Conference Center, Euless



To enhance your Ft. Worth PMI Chapter dinner meeting experience, beginning February 21 we will return to a monthly cadence at a new venue — the Texas Star Conference Center conveniently located in Euless. This venue is a vibrant part of the community. It offers spacious conference rooms enhanced by a beautiful view overlooking a winding creek and the 18th green of the award-winning championship golf course. We look forward to greater flexibility in organizing large meetings and small breakout sessions, an exciting variety of menu options, and a more robust meeting experience for you, our valued member. Join us for our next meeting at the Texas Star in Euless.

Fort Worth PMI Members, the PMI Member survey is coming up soon. The member survey is PMI’s method to hear your voice and determine how well it and our chapter are performing.  As PMI continues to understand and serve its customer (YOU), it includes questions that:
  • Collect demographic data of current members (i.e. age, PM experience level)
  • Identify improvement opportunities
  • Gauge member satisfaction
We encourage you to participate in this survey, so we can support you during your career journey and make the Fort Worth PMI Chapter beneficial for you. Look for it in your email inbox (on file with pmi.org) sometime in the month of February.  It should only take a few minutes.
Thanks for your support!
